What's the size of standard empire reg.
In the lore, total war or tabletop? And if so what addition/what types of troops?
Empire swordmen , spear reg ,helberd and great sword.
Would there be a standard size? Would it depend on the population and recruits? I mean like through the centuries of the empire there would be different sizes in population, sometimes in times of peace there'd be loads of folk to recruit but after say the vampire wars or the black plague there'd be a lot less folk to recruit. Would they rearrange the armies to fit them in or just disband the regiments that suffered losses and divide them up?
It varies depending on how many men can be conscripted in times of war. The standard basic unit would be a multiple of 12 with the captain or sergeant included on that number.
A sergeant would run a squad of 6 for local missions and patrols.
It is unlikely that anything smaller than a large city could have that type of organized force though. Most military units outside periods of open war were formed my militiamen instead and their numbers vary a lot.
What do you think?
